New school in Villaverde

The Minister of Education of the Canary Government, Soledad Monzón, President of the Cabildo, Marcial Morales, and the mayor of La Oliva, Pedro Amador, visited the site where will be located the new CEIP of Villaverde, requested by the neighbor’s years ago.

Monzón informed the insular president and other authorities that the future CEIP Villaverde already has project implementation, although the Ministry has decided to inspect and modify it to include some improvements, such as the roof of the sports fields, which was not expected in the initial document.

The new center will have nine educational units, built on a land of 2.382,57 square meters with an investment of 2,361,013 euros. Monzón stressed the importance of the project, since the current CEIP Villaverde, with about 190 students, has very old facilities.

Works[nbsp_tc]commence this year. Mayor Pedro Amador is glad that works on the new CEIP will begin this year ‘finally’: “It is a need that was in town for a long time. With this update, attention to students[nbsp_tc]will be much improved in the north.
